// THIS WEEK WITH // is a collection of paintings by artist Kirstin Lamb.
Kirstin Lamb’s small-scale gouache paintings depict dense salons and curiosity cabinets, and installations she constructs herself composed of her artworks and historical objects. These are pictures of pictures, drawn from studio props. They are both depictions of past compositions and future proposals for props not yet made. Derived from an interest in Dutch still life, specifically Vanitas still life, Lamb re-imagines her own work through a practice of using her paintings to paint again, reusing paintings in multiple arrangements, as interchangeable objects in an endlessly rotating still life or display. Curated by Kate Bae + Rachael Sydlowski + Kirstin Lamb and Anna Cone + Victoria-Indogesit Udondian.
